Trust Offers Financial Aid to Potential Actuaries

The Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) Trust Scholarship Committee is once again offering scholarships of $2,000 to students preparing to enter the actuarial profession.

Up to three students will be offered the money for the 2013–2014 school year as a way of furthering their interest in the property/casualty actuarial profession, and to encourage them to pursue the CAS designations.

The scholarships are open to U.S. or Canadian citizens or permanent residents who are currently attending a U.S. or Canadian college or university as a full-time student and remaining there during the 2013–2014 academic year. They must have sat for at least one actuarial exam by March 2013, and demonstrate high scholastic achievement, strong interest in the casualty actuarial profession, mathematical aptitude, and communication skills. Preference will be given to applicants who have not yet won the CAS Trust Scholarship.

Applications, which are due by March 4, must include an application form and essay, two recommendation letters, and a current official transcript. Winners will be notified of award decisions by May 17.

If you would like to apply, or know a deserving candidate, full details can be found at the CAS Trust Scholarship website.
